Alert me about debates like this



asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that the wire attachment in connection with the hydrophone station which was established at Rame Head during the War, on being disconnected, was not recovered or only partially so, and that in consequence the hook-and-line fishermen frequently fouled the wire with their mooring warp and grapnel, which are thereby lost; whether he is aware that this causes serious loss to the fisher men; and whether the Admiralty is prepared to remove the wire and compensate the fishermen for the losses they have sustained?

Inquiries are being made into this question, and I will communicate the result to the hon. Member as soon as possible. I may add that no claims or complaints in connection with this alleged obstruction have been received at the Admiralty.
